This is an excellent performance from 1969, almost as good as the the Dream Bowl shows the week after. This Alligator>Caution I consider to be one of the all time best under the radar performances - the Caution seriously gives me heart palpatations- There are moments of intensity in jerrys playing that I've heard in few other places. I should also mention the nice version of Dark Star which has an interesting baroque feel to it.

That said, I feel this performance is a bit overshadowed by TDIH 1973:

Love those Dream Bowl Elevens. Two more outstanding shows from arguably the greatest time period in the band's history.

Yes, the Caution is just seriously insane stuff. The GDTRFB jam really gets things cookin' and the second it segues into Caution, Jerry takes things to yet another level, and it is truly a unique and standout version.

I also prefer that illustrious '73 Dane County Coliseum show, but I like to give attention to the lesser known shows. Nice writeup on that one though. Also, your name seems to pop up in the reviews of the shows I listen to more often than anyone else's. You must have good taste! Then again, I just checked it out and you have a ton of shows you've commented on! Your comments always seem to be dead-on though.

Ya I don't mean to overshadow yah or anything. I for one think the early years don't get nearly enough of the attention they deserve by many. I'm glad to know we have a lot of the same tastes.

Thanks for the support, I do like to write reviews in my spare time (or as a diversion from what I need to get done) and it's cool to know that people do get something out of it other than me stroking my ego ;)

One thing that bothers me about my show comments is I tend to review shows too soon after hearing them. I've had to revise stuff quite a bit that I've under or over rated. But I guess that's part of the fun of it all, seeing how you perception can change over time.
